Designer and Luxury Fashion Shopping in Bratislava
Until a few years ago Bratislava had very limited choice of designer brand shops. Recently, new shops and department stores featuring some of the more prominent global fashion designers have sprung up both around the Old Town and in shopping malls. The selection is stil much more limited than in the neighbouring Vienna or in the Czech capital Prague.
Old Town and City Centre Designer Shops
Betty Barclay on Poštová Street was one of the first designer brands established in Slovakia. The pedestrian zone of the Old Town offers another luxury fashion shops. The design studio Dana Kleinert situated in the historic building of Academia Istropolitana on Venturská Street offers not only designer clothes, but unique hand-made accessories (handbags, shoes, scarves, mufflers, jewellery etc.) as well. Max Mara is another top designer brand situated in the pedestrian zone. To the designer shops located on Venturska Street belongs as well the world famous Trussardi.
